J.R. Heffner Claims 1st Lebanon Valley Victory Since 2019

The past couple of years have been a struggle at Lebanon Valley for J.R. Heffner. Saturday night saw additional engine issues for the Valatie, N.Y. native. However, he preserved to take his first win since 2019.

“I watched [Olden Dwyer] have his misfortune. Then I had the lead and a couple laps later, I dropped a cylinder,” Heffner said. “By rights, I should have pulled in. But, with the year we’ve been having, pulling in wasn’t an option. [The engine] would have had to give up on me for me to pull in.”
